"I served this cocktail for the first time at a wedding shower and it was a hit! Since then I make it whenever strawberries are in season. I have substituted raspberries when I had them on hand and it was great!"

Oh my God! I would give this 10 stars if I could! I love fruity drinks in the summer but margaritas and daquiri's can get that way too sweet or too tart taste. This was the perfect balance of sweet and tart, but also really fresh. My husband even loved it. He said the fresh basil reminded him of when his mom would add fresh mint to iced tea when he was a kid. A new summer staple for us! Oh and we also dont usually like gin. We've got two bottles left from our wedding 3 years ago and havent used a drop. Thanks for a wonderful way to use it up that we really love!
Sorry, but I didn't like this cocktail at all. Very strong, it tasted just like a strong strawberry flavoured carbonated water. Strawberry Mojito is much better in comparison with it. Sorry, maybe just not my kind.
This was a very refreshing and delicious cocktail, especially if you like fresh strawberries. The basil really set it off nicely. Perfect!!
Awesome recipe....even had the boys drinking a few!!!
Delish! Also excellent if substituted with a good quality vodka like Belvedere instead of the gin.
I substituted about 8 fresh blueberries instead of a strawberry and it was DELICIOUS! The basil adds a nice earthy flavor that definitely complements the gin. I think I found my new party drink!
Outstanding recipe! Just begs to be named Strawberry Fields Forever...
This is tasty, I think even more so if you substitute mint for the basil.
